• no snow > no rust > more old cars

      they only come out in the summer here in salty road country

      also, there's Gianni sending in every Italian car in the local passagietta

    • PacNW as a whole has some very interesting cars. In fact, the whole west coast. California has so many unique and strange cars, e.g. hollywood, etc…

  • Believe it or not, this 1.3 L was the more powerful option at that time. My old man drove the 1.1 L version, back in the old country. The Berlinetta had sporty styling, handled reasonably well, but didn't have any power to speak of. As a 12 year old, I loved it, even though it meant that for every drive, I had to crawl past the flipped forward driver-seat to get into the back seat. In spite of nostalgia, I like the looks of it, but don't feel the need to relive it.

  • The posting's deleted, but I'm guessing it's a stick which means fun. Tiny econo-hatchback with manual shift is a ton of fun. Lightweight, great visibility, huge practicality.

    I learned to drive stick chirping the tires in a girlfriend's Civic DX and have fun memories of driving around Denmark in my aunt's borrowed Citroën Saxo*.

    Plus it looks sharp as hell, especially with the roof rack.

    *This car had a bizarre 10-digit keypad which required a 4 digit security code to be entered whenever you used the car. The plastic wore off the buttons when you used them so everyone could see which digits were in the code.
